The Types of Bribery
Failing to Prevent Bribery
Bribes, Gifts and Hospitality
Bribery occurs far more often than you may think! In the UK, up to 1 in 4 organisations are pressurised to accept bribes or make illegal payments every year. Some companies even lose business to competitors as a result of bribes.
Our Anti-Bribery Course aims to raise awareness by explaining the four offences that can be committed under The Bribery Act.
You will learn about the very fine line between gifts and bribes – including when it is acceptable to give a gift or any form of hospitality, versus when it could in fact be seen as a bribe.
The course also explains what you should look out for, such as the signs that suggest that bribery might be occurring. This includes what you should do if you’ve been given, offered or promised a gift (including hospitality) that you think might be a bribe, or if you suspect someone else is involved in bribery.
The training course uses a simple style to explain the mechanics of bribery, supported by excellent graphics and animation. Scenario-style questions are used throughout the programme as examples to test understanding.

Why is Anti-Bribery Training Important?
The Bribery Act 2010 is an incredibly powerful legislation that applies to England, Wales, Scotland, and Northern Ireland. The law under this legislation states that there are 4 main offences relating to bribery. If you are found guilty of committing any of these offences, you could risk imprisonment, unlimited fines, and blacklisting.
The four offences that can be committed under The Bribery Act are:
Under Section 1 - Bribing another person
Under Section 2 - Being bribed
Under Section 6 - Bribery of foreign public officials
And under Section 7 - Failure to prevent bribery.
Benefits to Your Business
Giving and receiving bribes is illegal in the UK. Individuals or organisations who engage in bribery risk massive fines, a loss of reputation, time consuming investigations, and even prison sentences.
Despite this fact, it’s still incredibly prevalent with as many as a quarter of all organisations coming under pressure to accept or offer bribes in order to secure business or favour.
The line which separates genuine gifts from bribery is extremely fine. That’s why this course is an absolute essential for all members of staff. It helps to establish that key difference between gifts and bribes, by teaching users about the laws surrounding bribery, to prevent it from occurrence. Doing so allows you to avoid the serious legal, financial, and reputational consequences.
